Location: Austin Road, Seaford
The wetlands are well known for superb bird watching opportunities. There is a viewing platform near Austin Road and a good viewing point at the end of Mona Street. A viewing mound at Seaford North Primary School is open to the public outside school hours.
A well-made cycle/walking trail extends around most of the perimeter of the wetlands. Picnic tables are available at various locations. To extend your walk, Kananook Creek Reserve and Seaford Foreshore are about one kilometre and 1.5 kilometres, respectively, west of the reserve.
The remnant wetland areas are the largest remaining natural wetlands of their type in Port Phillip and Westerport basins.
Cats are prohibited in Seaford Wetlands.
Dogs are allowed to enter provided they are on a lead and must remain on constructed pathways at all times.
Illegal Monkey and Dirt Bikes
Illegal monkey and dirt bikes have had a detrimental effect in the fenced conservation area of the Seaford Wetlands. Due to the destruction caused, this area will be closed until further notice and monitored by rangers to enable the vegetation to recover.
This decision hasn’t been made lightly and follows extensive damage to native vegetation and consultation with local residents and is in the best interests of public safety for all reserve users.
All open space recreation areas around the boundary of the wetlands will remain open, including pedestrian pathways.
